Vetting Status: high
Apollonion [is] short for the shrine of Apollo. This is how one must construe it in Thucydides.[1] Also [sc. attested is] Poseidonion, that of Poseidon, like Athenaion, that of Athena, and Dionysion and Demetrion and all such [shrines] that have names similar to the proper names. As to "Poseidaneion", [it is] clear that [it is] Dorian.
